Malibu On Fire, Evacuated

Malibu On Fire, Evacuated

Approximately 75,000 homes are under evacuation orders throughout Ventura and Los Angeles Counties.

One of the fires broke out Thursday north-west of Los Angeles and roared south, jumping the U.S. 101 freeway early Friday and sweeping into the Santa Monica Mountains.

Fire officials couldn't estimate how many buildings were lost from the so-called Woolsey Fire burning in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, but said they were expected to be significant.

Voluntary evacuations have been added in Ventura County for Lake Sherwood and the area south of Highway 101 and north of Potrero Rd. between Westlake Blvd. and Wendy Thousand Oaks.

The blaze that started Thursday morning east of Paradise and decimated the town also spread to the west.

"We thought the fire was going to kill us", she told CNN.

The fire has burned more than 14,000 acres and all of Malibu is under mandatory evacuation.

With their habitat ablaze, wildlife have been also forced out of their homes by the Woolsey Fire.

The fire was driven by heavy winds last night. She had been filming aerial shots in her private plane earlier for her Instagram Stories and realized her own home was threatened.

Sparking about 6:30 a.m. Thursday near Pulga Road in Butte County, the Camp Fire was reported at 70,000 acres with 5 percent containment as of Cal Fire's 8:35 a.m. Friday incident report. Now a brush fire is threatening the surrounding area.

In Southern California, strong Santa Ana winds were fanning two fires, including the Woolsey Fire, which by Friday morning had burned across United States 101 and was heading in the direction of Malibu.

Desperate residents fled their homes armed with pets and children to escape the burning flames.

A perimeter map shows the boundaries of the Hill Fire burning Friday in Ventura County. Southern California Edison said via Twitter that many outages have been reported due to the "wind and fire conditions".

Residents posted on social media to share their views of the flames almost consuming the hillside in the Newbury Park area of western Thousand Oaks.

Scott Maclean, the state's forestry and fire protection spokesman, said a number of civilians and firefighters had been injured in the fire north of Sacramento but it would be days before the authorities knew whether anyone had died. Winds were blowing between 25-30 miles per hour and pushed the fire across the freeway onto Conejo Mountain toward the Pacific Coast Highway.

Evacuation orders are in effect for Paradise, Magalia, Concow, Butte Creek Canyon and Butte Valley.
